Hamas chief: Israel's Gaza ground offensive bound to fail

DOHA, Qatar (AFP) -- Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal said Friday that Israel's ground operation in Gaza was destined to fail, in remarks in the Qatari capital.

"What the occupier Israel failed to achieve through its air and sea raids, it will not be able to achieve with a ground offensive. It is bound to fail," Mashaal said from his exile in Doha.

A Hamas spokesman in Gaza said earlier "Israel will pay a high price" for launching the ground operation and that the Islamist Palestinian movement "is ready for the confrontation."
